It’s called Thinking Putty® because while you do whatever you want with it, your brain relaxes and opens up to all kinds of creative thinking. Need it? Yes. And you can also knead it. Or bounce it, bend it, tear it, stretch it, snap it, pop it. Pick from the 3.2 oz of dark green magnetic Strange Attractor putty with iron filings infused in it, plus a 1/2” cubed rare earth magnet; the 3.2 oz glimmering light green Foxfire putty that you can draw on with the included blacklight keychain light; or the Super Scarab, 3.2 oz. of color-shifting blue/purple/copper/red putty reminesent of Egyptian scarabs. Comes in a 4” dia x 1-3/8” tin.
Our each is approx 1-1/3 oz (40ml) of The Original Slime (“Feels Wet and Cold!”) and it must be scientific because it comes in a cool little Erlenmeyer flask, although with a very un-Erlenmeyerish but important screw cap. We’ll pick a nauseating color. Non-toxic, for ages 5 and up, because you’re never too old for slime.
What makes these squeezable slime suckers so special is how cool they are when, after sucking up a goodly slurp of slime, they can be squozen to spit a blob of it back out. You’ll get a snail or monster head sucker, approx 2" long, plus a little tub of slime, in assorted colors. They could make 50 minutes of algebra just fly by.
The magic putty with dyspepsia is back. OK, it's fart goop, but you still wouldn't want to go to middle school without it. You'll get about 2-1/4 oz (in a color we'll pick) inside a little round plastic container that's about 2-1/2" tall x 1-1/2" dia--a little bigger than an old film canister, or roughly the size of a shot glass. Put in a thumb; pull out a rude noise.
The polymath from Vinci was the first to create anamorphic (intentionally distorted) art, but you can continue the fun with the Cosmic Zoom, a plastic parabolic mirror and a tube that will hold the (12) anamorphic pictures in the kit. Watch the mirror de-mystify the distorted images on the tube, and make them move. Includes images to draw and to color, plus a little history, and tips for making your own anamorphic art, including templates.
Labeled Volcanic Gunk, we'd be lying if we didn't tell you that we have our doubts that the red slime inside the tube actually spewed out of an active volcano. (Call us your retail myth busters.) Nice slime though, and really red. Plus the volcano screw cap on the 5-1/2" long x 1-3/8" tube is clever and cute. Approx 2-1/2 oz of slime per tube.
